Well looky, looky. KGP Photography has caught a lengthened HUMMER H2 SUT out testing in full military apparel, complete with a white star! Looking something out of a G.I. Joe play set, this tester has got a lot of extra inches added behind the B-pillar creating a bed much longer the standard H2 SUT. So what's going on here? Glenn Paulina from KGB surmises that this HUMMER H2 SUT may be riding on the GMT900 platform that's also used by the Suburban and the General's half-ton pickups. The current H2 SUT rides on an older GMT820 platform, according to Winding Road. This suggests that the H2 SUT may be maturing into a bonafide truck of trucks, with the intent of further distinguishing itself from the upcoming H3T. If this is true, it's also possible that HUMMER could be considering a lengthened version of the HUMMER H2 SUV itself, creating a kind of Suburban HUMMER. With the H1 officially gone, there's certainly no chance of cannibalizing your own sales, though that doesn't address the question of whether consumers want an even bigger HUMMER SUV or truck at the moment.

      Funny- the carconnection write-up suggests this might be on a GMT900 platform. the Current H2 still uses a derivative of the HD 800- as do the current GM HD trucks. Since the vehicle in the picture clearly has 8-lug wheels, I would imagine that it is sitting on an 800 derivative chassis, using rear coils and front torsion bars. Of course, having a longer rear overhang would also permit simply using a leaf-sprung rear end, which can work work quite well, if the springs are spec'd properly.

      something about those pictures makes me think this is a model that someone built and photographed - i think it is the scale of the sand...

      Wow. Here I was thinking Lutz was getting senile when he said that there wasn't enough of a market here for the Chevy Beat, but now they have completely lost it. Now I'm convinced that they ARE trying to kill GM. Time to put ole Bob in a home and forget about him.

      I agree, and wouldn't mind owning one with the new interior and 4.5L diesel when it becomes available. I would probably go out looking for things to tow or places to drive off-road. Hell, I might even try storm chasing like those Edmunds did a story on use a black H2 for. Commence the flaming.

        The larger chassis would also allow room for a 2-mode hybrid drive train. Coupled with the 4.5 diesel, whadyathink, maybe 13 mpg?

      It looks like the government is finally getting around to replacing the M1009. It is ashame they don't have diesels in these though...

      Engineering mule or not, the H2 looks great with that military paint job and those wheels.
        • 7 Years Ago
        The H2 is pretty cool-looking to begin with (flaming to commence in 3...2...1...)

        That's what all the email spammers have been telling me for months.

        2..1..0...

        You are crazy if you think that "thing" looks good :), I hope you said it just to start a flaming war.
